Experimental: Water immersion colonoscopy
Water immersion during colonoscope insertion and room air insufflation during colonoscope withdrawal.
Procedure: Water immersion
Water immersion means infusion of room temperature water during colonoscope insertion without air insufflation.
Active Comparator: Air insufflation colonoscopy
Standard room air insufflation during both colonoscope insertion and withdrawal.
Procedure: Air insufflation insertion
Other Name: Room air insufflation during colonoscope insertion.
- Success rate of unsedated colonoscopy [ Time Frame: at the end of each colonoscopy ]Successful unsedated colonoscopy is defined as reaching the cecum by using given insertion technique without administering sedation.
- Discomfort during colonoscopy [ Time Frame: at the end of each colonoscopy ]Discomfort level using visual continuous scale 0-10 (0 = no pain, 10 = worst pain).
- Cecal intubation time [ Time Frame: while reaching the cecum ]Cecal intubation time is defined as time between colonoscope introduction into the anus and reaching the cecum.
